INOV8 Mudtalon

(Wide fit)


Meet the MUDTALON: a trail & fell running shoe for everyday training over any distance on soft and muddy ground.

Built for hills, mountains and mud, the MUDTALON provides superior grip on any terrain you’ll encounter. Talon-like 8mm studs will gouge through soft mud, but also cling to wet rock for dependable grip and traction. The unique goat’s hoof shape of the studs also release the mud just as quick once you push off, keeping you feeling light and in control.

The MUDTALON benefits from our lightest midsole foam yet: POWERFLOW PRO. Compared to the MUDTALON SPEED, the MUDTALON has a slightly thicker midsole, to give greater comfort and bounce over long distances. Despite the cushioning, the shoe’s midsole has been designed in such a way that you can still feel and respond to the ground beneath you – something that’s particularly important when running in the hills and mountains.

The brand-new anatomical shape of the MUDTALON hugs the natural contours of your foot, locking in at the heel and widening at the toes for a secure, comfortable feel. Built into that we have two new specific fits for MUDTALON – Precision Fit and Wide Fit. The biggest difference between the two fits is the width at the toe-box, with the Wide fit being wider:

  • Go Precision Fit if you have narrow feet or like a closer, more secure feel. It allows for greater nimbleness and agility when running and contouring over steep or tricky terrain.
  • Go Wide Fit if you have wider feet or like an extra comfortable feel with more wiggle room for toes. It allows for greater comfort when running longer distances, when toes can often swell.

A secure, locked-in feel at the heel is achieved by a MET-CRADLE. Thick overlay strips connect your midfoot to your heel, which pulls in when you tighten your laces. Underfoot, a flexible ROCK-PLATE protects your feet against sharp rocks and tree roots.

The drop of a shoe is the difference in height between the heel and forefoot. The greater the drop, the steeper the angle between your heel and forefoot.

For example, when barefoot, the heel and forefoot touch the ground at the same level: drop is 0. At the other end of the scale, when wearing high heels, the drop is much greater.

We are living in a climate emergency. Vague pledges by countries and companies are meaningless. We as a team are committed to playing our part and taking action.

Since 2003, when Inov-8 was founded, we have pushed ourselves to be sustainable in all of our working practices. However, relying on good intentions wasn’t enough to fully understand Inov-8’s role in the climate crisis. So, in 2020 we developed a Sustainability Strategy, in partnership with Dr Anne Prahl, an expert at the forefront of sustainable workplaces and design. This guides every aspect of what we do, and you can read more about our Mission statement and Sustainability Pillars below.

During 2023 we are reviewing this strategy, measuring a full company carbon footprint, and investigating ethical and transparent recycling and reuse solutions – amongst other exciting actions! We can’t wait to share our progress with you in our first Sustainability Report in 2024 – watch this space.
